Ohio State’s Day: Players want to know ‘why can’t they play?’

The first big Saturday of college football games is arriving and Ohio State coach Ryan Day said on Thursday that his players want answers per why they will be sitting and watching while others are in action.

The Big Ten postponed its fall season due to the coronavirus pandemic and hopes to play it in the spring. But Day sees the ACC and other conferences on the verge of playing games and it doesn’t sit right to him.

“These young men and their parents have asked so many questions that I do not have an answer to, but the one that hurts the most is, ‘Why can these other teams and players play and we can’t?'” Day said in a statement on his Twitter account. “Duke is playing Notre Dame, and Clemson is playing Wake Forest this weekend. Our players want to know: why can’t they play?”
